Soaked almonds and its benefits

on

We all know that Almonds are loaded with nutritional values. You find this nut everywhere. This Nut contains all nutrients such as Protein, Vitamin, Fiber, Omega 3 & 6 fatty acids, potassium, zinc, magnesium, calcium and so on.

Everyone suggests that eating almonds every day improves our health and beauty. But we should know how many almonds needs to consume and how it can be consumed.

According to Almonds.com, You can eat one ounce, which is 23 almonds on a daily basis.

According to United States Department of Agriculture(USDA),  In 1 Ounce almonds, the nutritional facts are,

  • Calories – 164
  • Fat – 14.36 g (73%)
  • Carbs – 5.6 g (14%)
  • Protein – 6.03 g (13%)

What’s the difference between eating Raw almonds and Soaked almonds,

Raw almonds are generally very hard to consume. It would make the digestion very difficult. The brown skin of almonds contains tannin which inhibits nutrient absorption. Our body cannot breakdown this enzyme-inhibiting compound. Soaked almonds are more healthy. In order to absorb all those nutrients, the almonds you eat, should be soaked in water overnight. Once you soak almonds the peel comes off easily and allows the nut to release all nutrients easily.

Next day, the size of the almonds would have been increased, drain the water, peel off the skin.
